Option 1:

If you want to use the USB cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer to transfer the video to the Computer then:

(Applicable for Vista Operating System Only.)

This Camcorder does not support USB streaming with the VISTA Operating System. Use an i.LINK cable to transfer the video to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. (An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer. The Sony Camcorder will have the 4 pin i.LINK cable and if the computer has the 6 pin i.LINK port, then you may have to use the 4 pin to 6 pin i.LINK Cable).

You can use any video capturing software like Windows Movie Maker to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer.

Refer this Link for the instruction to transfer the video to the Computer using i.LINK cable.

NOTE: As the Camcorder does not support USB streaming with Vista, it is not required to use any Sony Device Driver to transfer the video to the Computer. You do not require any Drivers or Software from Sony to transfer the video from the Camcorder to the Computer using the i.LINK/Firewire interface.

Option 2:

(Applicable for Windows XP Operating System only):

If you are using a Windows XP Operating System then you have to install the USB Streaming Driver in the Computer from the supplied Software disk with the Computer.

Check this Link for the instruction to transfer video to a Computer using USB Streaming.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C222820

If you do not have the supplied Software disk then I suggest that you use the i.LINK cable to transfer the video.

Or you can purchase the software disk from this link:

NOTE: Since the original supplied software is not available for free download now.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!

Camcorders have only one color system to record accordingly, either PAL or NTSC
Sony DCR-HC36 is NTSC camcorder and DCR-HC36E would be PAL camcorder.
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

This is due to the fact that the safety tab on the tape is not present or is switched to lock . This is to prevent accidental recording on the tape. However if you had tried with a new tape and the fault seems to come then the fault can be that the trigger switch on this detector circuit is shorted or is accidently pressed to be ON. You can remove the tape cover and check this switch , if not there is fault on the controller section .

This is usually caused by a defective component in the tape detection circuitry and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Hi Poohammn,

Please follow the below instructions :-

Download the file USB Drven from the below link and then install it.

http://esupport.sony.com/perl/swu-do...2&PASSVAL2=SMB

This will extract, and create a folder on the computer desktop named Sony-usb , or anything as per your choice

Open this folder , and open the setup icon.
Complete the install and now the USB driver will copy to the computer.

After the installation you would have to restart the computer and it would work fine.

Hope this helps ..:)
